We went on this tour a couple of nights ago. Very relaxing, informative and the cheese platter was great. BYO alcohol if you want to. The sunset on the night we went was just stunning. Great trip with good company.

Beautiful relaxing trip in a magical setting - thank you! We were lucky with perfect moonlight too. Hosts were very friendly and knowledgeable. Great for kids. Only suggestion would be the cheese platter was a little dry - add some chutney or similar?
